Dry Skin Savers

I shared a youtube video earlier this week with a simple hack to fix the side-swept hairstyle that often uses bobby pins. Click here to watch it!

Every time I stumble across this jacket I fall more and more in love.

I shared this week that Sheila, my esthetician, recommended the Triple Lipid Restore moisturizer to me and it has truly helped my skin in the best way. It costs a pretty penny, but a little goes a long way and when you have sensitive, irritation-prone skin like me, it’s truly worth it to find a moisturizer that works for me.

I got a beautiful green quilted jacket from Madewell recently but it is totally sold out. I found a similar version at Old Navy in an equally beautiful green color!

If you’re looking ahead to a bit of free time at the end of the year, and you like to read, check out my list of books that I’ve read recently on Goodreads!

The code for ABLE doesn’t work. Could it be wrong?
